“Beautiful Africa and even more beautiful people from around the world that have all shown me nothing but love.
“I am extremely humbled and overwhelmed by the tremendous and mind blowing support you beauties have shown me over the past 10 weeks.”
A successful first attempt, the ANTM is a baby product of Nigerian supermodel, Oluchi.
It “follows supermodel hopefuls from all over the continent as they strive to prove they have what it takes to make in the cut-throat world of modeling.
“The show documents a continent-wide search to find 12 top contenders who will compete for a coveted modeling contract and a shot at the career of a lifetime.”
Over a period of several weeks, 12 lucky contestants including Ghana’s Roselyn Ashkar, were trained by some of the top-modeling experts in the world.
Contestants were evaluated on a regular basis by an elite panel of judges led by Oluchi.
